  MissScarlett: <In 1955, Willis Eugene Lamb (1913-2008) shared the Nobel Prize in Physics for his discoveries concerning the fine structure of the hydrogen spectrum. He played in a few chess tournaments in California. In high school, he was one of about 30 students who played simultaneously against world champion Alexander Alekhine. Lamb won his game against Alekhine. In 1933, Lamb took 2nd place at an intercollegiate chess tournament held at the World's Fair in Chicago. He then won the rapid-transit tournament.
